Joni Turner, who describes herself as a lawyer by trade and an American by birth, has had enough nonsense from CNN. She is preparing a massive class action suit against the alleged news network — now seen as the least-trusted name in network news.

In keeping with the law, she has sent them a cease and desist order, which in my opinion won’t affect their attitude or their condemnation of all Trump voters as Nazis, racists, and white supremacists.

Violation of the cease and desist order would then allow Turner to bring the class action suit to court. Within mere minutes after she opened a website for people to sign up to be part of the class, she had garnered 600 signatures.

People would not collect much money, especially if tens of thousands join the suit, so my suggestion is that CNN should be forced to pay any settlement to the RNC. That would drive them nuts.

“It is time to hold CNN accountable. I am using every avenue available to Legally go after CNN for using their ‘Fake’ News Platform to ‘Defame’ ‘Bully’ ‘Target’ and ‘Destroy’ Conservative Americans.”

According to the Conservative Tribune:

Turner has said that she treats every potential case as if it is going to trial. The cease and desist letter was the beginning. Now, with thousands joining a potential class-action suit, this could be a real legal headache for the Clinton News Network.

Americans are tired of being lied to and lied about, they don’t want fake news and they do not want to be unfairly targeted by a corporation that calls themselves “the most trusted name in news.”

The accusation that the tens of millions of Americans who voted for Trump are white supremacists was made initially by Mark Naison, a political activist and history professor at Fordham University in New York City. CNN cited Naison’s opinion as the basis for their claim.

Naison also equated Trump voters to “nice people” in the Holocaust and Rwanda who looked the other way while acts horrific violence were being perpetrated:

Trump voters helped advance white supremacy by giving them room to operate, CNN reported based on the assertions of others in a piece headlined, “‘White Supremacists by default’: How ordinary people made Charlottesville possible.”

“It’s easy to focus on the angry white men in paramilitary gear who looked like they were mobilizing for a race war in the Virginia college town,” CNN reported. “But it’s the ordinary people — the voters who elected a reality TV star with a record of making racially insensitive comments, the people who move out of the neighborhood when people of color move in, the family members who ignore a relative’s anti-Semitism — who give these type of men room to operate.”

I think it’s time for Congress to pass laws that would allow the government to go to court to shut down alleged news broadcasters for spreading fake news or attacking the sixty some million who vote for a candidate in derogatory references.
